Here's an idea:

The San Francisco public library's central branch should stay open later, like at least as late as Green Apple. However, I realize that this places it at serious risk of becoming even more of a hobo museum than it is now. Solution: charge everyone a $20 deposit when they come in after 8pm. They'll get their money back when they leave for the night. Or (this was suggested by a coworker) their $20 gets them up to three drink tickets. That's right. There'll be a bar somewhere in the library. I'll work out the logistics of it later, but that's it in a nutshell. Somebody get this going. Literacy is important.
